Throughout this book, the authors emphasize that primary science is at its best as a practical, hands-on experience for children. When ICT is used in an integral way, it can enable practical work to be done at a more sophisticated level, helping children to make sense of their findings. The book includes several case studies from primary classrooms and each chapter includes practical suggestions for teachers. The wide-ranging topics covered include: databases and spreadsheets data logging control technology ICT, drama and science school visits planning for ICT and science choosing and using software. ICT and Primary Science is an accessible and jargon-free resource for teachers and student teachers of primary science.As part of their practical work the children made windmills when studying air and built lava lamps when learning about water. Figure 9.4 shows word processed instructions describing how to make a lava lamp, as written by one of the children .
